I'm still playing with resin, this time preserving wildflowers from last summer.
I've always used Dad's old dictionary to press them.
I found this thrifting today, I'm big time now!
Ferns from my Valentine's bouquet....
will become a series of botanicals for my bedroom.
I bought these felt stems from my favorite scrapbooking store Anthologies. They are by Prima. I want to use them with my pressed ferns for kind of a 3-D botanical.
Bought these the same day...aren't they awesome!! Giant stamps by Donna Downey. I love this store, it's only blocks from my house so I stop in at least a couple of times a week.
An old poem printed on transparency makes a cool pocket for seeds. It's a page for a nature journal I'm working on.
First I transferred an old book page onto canvas.
I'm obsessed with this little piece of seaweed. It looked like a little bulb & it dried so beautifully. My friend Dorthe says in Denmark it's called 'bladder wrack'. I plan to encase it in resin, but I'm afraid if it doesn't work I'll cry. It's the only piece I have, we found it on a beach in Monterey last summer. If any of you beach- combers see any, I will pay you for some!
